    Re: used in used for

    I think we need the whole sentence to gather the context. But in these examples, you can see the difference:

    Shallots can be used for green onions in many recipes. (used for = as a replacement)
    Shallots can be used in soups and salads for an extra depth of flavour. (used in = a component)
